Mintey Breast Cancer Awareness Motorcycle Run @ Findlay Moose Lodge
Jun 24 @ 11:00 am – 4:30 pm

This year’s Mintey Breast Cancer Awareness Motorcycle Run is planned for June 24, with the Findlay Moose Lodge as the start and finish. Registration is from 9-10:30 a.m., with kickstands up promptly at 11. Cost is $25 for couples, $20 for single riders and $10 for nonriders. Registration includes a meal and a live performance by Findlay band 2nd Trik.

Stops on this year’s ride include the Ben Breece Harley Davidson shop in Ottawa, followed by the Buckeye Club in Miller City and The Hydrant in Bloomdale. The event is not a poker run and riders don’t stay at any stop too long.

Typically, riders are back to the Moose by about 4:30 p.m. There, 50/50 drawings, a cash bar and silent auctions are set up.

Preregistration is not available, but T-shirts can be purchased in advance at the Cancer Patient Services office, or by emailing bikersis@live.com.
